Seasoned Pioneers has extended its range of specialist spice blends as well as launching new merchandising options for retailers.
The firm’s new blends include the hot Shichimi Togarashi (‘seven flavours’ in Japanese) featuring red chillies, orange peel, black sesame seeds, sesame seeds, sansho pepper, ginger root and nori flakes.
The new Portuguese-Mozambique Peri-Peri spice blend also has a chilli kick but with “a warmth and smokiness with citrus notes”.
At the other end of the heat scale the Merseyside-based firm has developed a wild herb cooking sea salt – a blend of thyme, lavender, black pepper, marjoram, rosemary, oregano, savoury and tarragon with sea salt.
It is also offering a smaller version of its popular 48-unit spice rack, which will hold 24 units, and now has branded header boards that can be attached to the racks. All merchandising material and racks are supplied free of charge.
